In recognition of the 





Thursday, October 30, 1997 

As the largest producer and consumer of designed 
goods and services in the world, the United States is 
committed to the highest standards of design excel- 
lence. Well-designed products, services, and commu- 
nications bring economy, safety, ease, and beauty to 
our everyday lives. Design reaches into every sector of 
society and can even transform the way government 

By recognizing government agencies, federal employ- 
ees, and private designers, the Presidential Design 
Awards promote awareness of the many ways design 
can make government better serve the American peo- 
ple. I commend the recipients of this year's awards for 
helping to enhance the quality of life in our nation. 
Your work exemplifies the ingenuity, creativity, and 
skill that has always defined the American Spirit.
